Director General of National Public Health Institute of Liberia

By DTRA PA Defense Threat Reduction Agency

Defense Threat Reduction Agency's Dr. Robert Pope, director for Cooperative Threat Reduction hosted the National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL) Delegation and U.S. Government Interagency Health Team Partners from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health and USAID at Fort Belvoir, Va., on 21 Sep 21. The meeting was held to discuss objectives, priorities, and outcomes in the design and operationalization of the new National Reference Lab (NRL) in Monrovia. DTRA is leading the construction of the new laboratory which will increase Liberia's ability to detect, diagnosis, and report of diseases of potential security concern.


DTRA provides cross-cutting solutions to enable the Department of Defense, the United States Government, and international partners to deter strategic attack against the United States and its allies; prevent, reduce, and counter WMD and emerging threats; and prevail against WMD-armed adversaries in crisis and conflict.
